Wood river ranch Wedding in Sun Valley, Idaho
This Sun valley wedding is a very special one for me. I was lucky enough to have already shot the Grooms sister’s wedding in San Diego. The family had a blast there and believe me this Idaho Wedding was no different! I first start the day with Chris and his parents. Chris’s suit is a light grey which he pairs greatly with a mint tie. Katie left him a thoughtful note saying she was excited to see him at 2!
After spending time with the groom I head out to Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Church to meet up with Katie. As soon as I pull up to the church I notice how stunning it looks with tall dark wood ceilings. I see the bride and how lovely she looks in her wedding gown. After enjoying a moment in her dress she was ready for her jewelry. She chooses to wear a simple pearl necklace paired with extravagant earrings. She was able to share some precious moments with her bridesmaids that I was happy to capture.
Finally the intimate Sun Valley Wedding ceremony with close friends and family begins! Katie smiling from ear to ear the whole time. Needless to say her smile is contagious throughout the day and night. After the ceremony we head to a field in Sun Valley.There is majestic mountains in the background that compliment the Bride and Grooms beauty. I take this time to take some beautiful landscape portraits of the couple. I tried very hard to capture the essence of Katie’s home and her mustang which she had since she was 16. This was very important for me because Chris moved from Texas to pursue a loving life with Katie. I luckily also got to capture a picture of them near the cattle they raise themselves.
After exploring the unforgettable fields of Sun Valley in Idaho we head back to Wood River Ranch for the reception. You could see that everyone in the family put in a lot of work to make the wedding details just right. The details including tons of flowers and pastries! Everything feels authentic to what Katie and Chris love. Furthermore just like the San Diego Wedding thrown by Chris’s family prior I knew this would be a blast beginning to end and it was! The alcohol was flowing all night as all came together to welcome this newly blessed marriage. The last shot I took of them was a spectacular one of them smiling beneath the warm moon’s glow.
Overall I would like to say thank you Katie and Chris for welcoming me in to your lovely home and allowing me to shoot your Idaho Wedding. The sights I got to experience with you will be some I never forget!
